As the world gets louder (and often ruder) I find myself getting quieter. It's as if the sound of silence is a vacation from reality.
So, in no particular order:
Hubby survived his birthday, in spite of shaking his head and mumbling, "60? 60! 60?!"
Bourbon the Enthusiastic now weighs in at 71+ pounds at not quite 7 months old. Still mischievous, prone to take stuff not belonging to him and quick on his feet. Oh but when he curls up on the couch next to me for a puppy nap, it's all easy to forgive.
Pollen 99.....hope 1 (and itchy). Spring like weather all week, now cold front with rain/possible snow visiting on Sunday. As if that stupid Daylight Saving Time "spring forward" wasn't enough.
Heard a radio program concerning Lent and 2 college students: one Catholic, one Jewish. While having the concept of giving something up for Lent explained to him, the Jewish roomie stated he didn't believe his Catholic friend was actually really giving up anything he cherished. So Roommate C. allowed Roommate J. to chose what was to be given up. Year one, J chose "oregano" and C. laughed. Until he remember that he loved Italian food and Pizza. Not only did they follow this routine for 4 years of college, 25 years later, J. still calls C. to advise what he needs to give up. It's always so seemingly innocent until the bigger picture is seen: yeast (no beer/bread), corn syrup (goodbye sodas), sugar..... C. and J. are not only good friends, they learned from one another about what's important in life. C. claimed the only thing he wouldn't give up...is J.
Remember our huge pecan tree, the Old Gal? Hope springs eternal at our house and progress was made in sinking deep anchors into the ground today in hopes of pulling 3 trees back upright. All are alive...and buds are trying to push out. Just have to weed out the procrastinating, well meaning folks and find more like the guy this morning who said he'd be here and he was.
Hope you have a Happy Weekend in your neck of the woods.
